I'm making one like this. It had a nice woodsy start but vanished into baby powder territory a bit too soon, so needs more work. I feel it was the vanilla because I only meant to put two drops in but forgot I hadn't diluted it, so it was too strong. I would appreciate someone elses ideas. These are 10% in fractionated coconut oil so measurements are in drops for a sample.
31 thai sandalwood, 20 vanilla (way too much as it was meant to be 2), 20 vetivert, 10 Guaicwood, 5 patchouli, 10 cedarwood atlas, 5 oakmoss, 10 rose, 5 carnation, 1 birch tar, 5 black pepper, 6 cabreuva, 4 galbanum, 5 peru balsam, 12 bitter orange, 3 frankincense, 4 ginger, 2 lime
I have an ancient 1700's recipe for cologne somewhere which uses sandalwood. I shall hunt for it.
